Trump campaign slams Fox News for early Arizona call

"Okay, okay - how about this: It's not about Fox, it's about counting our votes," Ward said.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign on Thursday attacked the person at Fox News responsible for the network's projection calling Arizona for Biden as a "Clinton-voting, Biden-donating Democrat."

With Arizona in Biden's column, he would have 264 of the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House, putting him closer to victory and narrowing his Republican opponent's path to re-election.

President of Citizens United David Bossie experienced an issue with his microphone during Thursday's press conference and said, "What is going on? It's the fake news media."

KELLI WARD: Tell you Arizona is in play, folks. We are in play.


And when I was watching the Election Night returns and I saw Fox News inappropriately call Arizona for a radical leftist [MUTED] socialist team, I can tell you, I started tweeting out right away to retract. Retract, Fox, retract because Arizona is more than set to be able to win.

- Fox News sucks! Fox News sucks! Fox News sucks! Fox News sucks!

KELLI WARD: OK, OK, how about this? I-- you know, it's not about Fox, it's about counting our votes.

DAVID BOSSIE: And we're here to protect the vote of the Arizona people. And-- and I got to tell you, I see the numbers. I see what's going to happen over the next several days.


What is going on? It's-- it's the-- it's the fake news media.


Now, listen, folks, Arizona, the bottom line is President Trump is going to win Arizona. I believe it.
